Oh  how I’ve dreamt that you and I

Would  be together by and by

Somewhere  upon an island near

Or  in some place that’s free of fear.

We’d chat about  our fav’rite things

Like  love and care and angel wings

I  miss your laugh and your bright smile

Though you’ve been gone a long,  long while.

It’s  been a road with ups and downs

Filled  with wise men,  some fools and clowns

I truly don’t  know  what to do

How shall I manage without you !

These are the days have been foretold

By  sages in  those times  of old

When  men were  there to oversee

The  rules  of  our  society.

Then  manners  were a  part of all

We   thought or  knew or  did  befall

Our  faith in  God  was not  denied

He  is our  Light,  the Man  Inside !

My  wishes for a pleasant day

To  you  are wending  fast their way

I  hear the  church bells  as they sound

With  joy and  worship  heaven bound.

For  all who  listen to  my  voice

Your  time’s  arrived to  make a choice

Choose  God  and learn how  to obey

To  love your neighbor  and to pray.

Be kind  remembering  the  need

Of  all God’s  children and their seed

For  all are  meant to  heed  His Word

And  cherish all that  they have heard !

 

YOUR FRONT DOOR ( 2019 ) 2019/10/15

I’m  looking through the window glass

Observing  as  my  life  rolls  past

Still  wondering where I  have  been

Or  if  I’ll pass this  way again ?

How  strange is life  when  one is  young

And from  the  heart,  love’s song  is sung

The  words still echo  on  my ear

They bring me calm  and soothe  my fear.

Be  kind  dear  Lord,  now  that  tis o’er

Too  soon  I’ll  knock on Your  front door !

 

 

LEARN TO COPE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/14

As  one  reflects on  former  days

When  life seemed grand with love ablaze

To ponder all the  many  schemes

That filled our lives and were our dreams.

How sad  that most did fade  away,

Forgotten  plans of  yesterday,

Yet  left some here still  dreaming on

That  long  lost  isle of Avalon.

While tales  were told to  bring us hope

And  teach us how to learn to cope

Since  most of  life’s  inequities

Are issues  that we  must  appease !

 

 

 

 

 

BUFFOONS ( 2019 ) 2019/10/13

When  you look around  what do you see

Millions  involved  in dishonesty

A  nation in chains  by subterfuge

Victim of  a scam  that is so huge.

How sad that this is where we’ve  wound up

Sipping  tragedy  from  one  cracked cup

We’ll  do our best to escape the goons

Please God  help save us all  from buffoons !

 

 

I’LL TAKE A CHANCE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/12

I  hear the  whistle on  the  track

It  seems to shout,  come back,  come back

But  I have  been  this way  before

Not  once,  but  twice or maybe more

And  cannot bear  the lonesome sound

Of  emptiness  which  I  have found.

My  bags are packed  all set to go

I’m  ready for  another  show

I  do not have a  backup  plan

And  may  become  an ” also  ran ”

God  with Your  help,  I’ll  take a chance

Tis  time to  try  to learn  to dance !
